    2 cents too greedy on my second-leg bid for jpm. But holy smokes, what a wipeout!!!

    Wow. Congrats Kiwi. Good call.

    I credit Eric for inciting me to look for the opportunity. JPM seemed to be setting up for a short squeeze, flying a little higher than the other suspects.

    Beats trying to get a point out of AAPL and then only if you can time things with perfection.

    So I can rejoice that my ship has arrived!

    Nobody wants to own stock over the weekend.

    Waiting for my failboat to come in so I can flip long. Again.

    AAPL new LOD; breaking down fast.

    edit: will $90 hold?

    I cannot give an exact reading on this, but as far as the DOW goes, we had a low last Wed. & Friday of more than 60 days, then bounced and climbed to this week’s high of 8400. Looks like 7940? So, I would call that support to look out for. Same days for S&P, and that support was 804.

    All the traders I hear interviewed and our MIA man Art say S&P 800 is the trap door.

    Edit: I suppose we could look to this as a retest opportunity of a near term bottom on the indices? Making a near term trading double bottom if the above numbers hold?

    Edit: wish I hadn’t freaked and covered my JPM short during that meltdown earlier.

    Eric, I don’t know how to make your song links. But if I did, I’d post Blue Oyster Cult, “Don’t Fear the Reaper.” (shows her age)

    “They” got the DOW back over 8000 before the close.

    gee this is bloody scary…. holding/selling??? AAAARGGGHHHHHHH.

    what about you guys and Kiwi?

    The way this is shaping up, I would not be surprised if we see 90 again.


    DON’T SAY THAT!!!

    Now go wash your mouth out with soap!


    And SAY YOU’RE SORRY!

    Don’t you mean “beak”?

    Only 1 cent off with that prediction (no help from AMZN and a “not quite as crap as expected” GDP figure).

    IMHO, those shorting AAPL are suckers soon to be buried.

    Not today, I guess. The longs were the only ones getting buried today.

    Thanks for the link Eric. There’s not a good clip of my song choice, but everyone gets the idea.

    Jeez, 90.01 LOD! Only 21 points or so off of my estimated low on the DOW. I think Monday will be fun, to say the least. I only fear I’m never going to get to the healthclub again. rolleyes  :wink:

    The 50d SMA today was at $90.00 (as of ToS), and the volume is still quite low. There still is a fighting chance for Monday.

    (I hope).
